Snap launched its first new augmented reality (AR) reality game, called Ghost Phone. It creates a virtual environment and lets you hunt ghosts around you anywhere. The story goes through a found phone which belongs to a teenager named List, and you need to solve the mystery of what happened to the owner of the phone.
Players have to find the password of the phone to unlock it by souring texts for cues and hunting ghosts to find out what happened to Lisa. The game is focused on the AR Ghost, and there will be different types of activities available to find the ghost.
Niantic’s Pokemon Go was another popular AR game.But this game doesn’t seem to reach the level of that game since it doesn’t require that much effort. However, the game is enjoyable to play.
